Bugatti unveils special edition Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Legend "Jean-Pierre Wimille"

Bugatti has unveiled another special edition of the Veyron, this time a Grand Sport Vitesse Legend “Jean Pierre Wimille”, that will make its debut next month at the Monterey Week in California.

The Veyron Vitesse Legend “Jean-Pierre Wimille” will be limited to just three units and pays tribute to the driver who won Bugatti two victories at the 24 Heures du Mans: in 1937, driving a Bugatti 57G Tank co-piloted by Robert Benoist, and again in 1939, this time supported by Pierre Veyron in a 57C Tank.

This special edition Vitesse features a blue clear-coated carbon fibre and a light Wimille Bleu paintwork finish. The same dolour scheme continues inside.

Power comes from a 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine with 1183bhp, enabling it to accelerate from 0-62mph in just 2.6 seconds all the way to a top speed of 255mph.

In total there will be six Bugatti Legends, meaning another five names that have shaped Bugatti’s history will lend their names to more special editions.

Pricing for the first Legends model was not announced, but we expect it to start from well above £1.5 million.
